I am discovery. I am wonder. I am chappie.
Humanity's last hope isn't human.
Movie Connection(s):
Reference: Elysium (English)
Near the end of the movie, there's a TV news broadcast shown asking people to call the police if they see CHAPPiE. CHAPPiE's original "body" had a very distinctive look compared to the other Scouts, and this "body" was lying on the floor of the MOOSE holding area when the police broke into it--his new "body" looks like all the other Scouts now.

Revealing Mistakes
When Deon is being followed from tetravaal, Vincent's vehicle changes from a compact car to a pickup in the next scene.

Revealing Mistakes
After van explosion, money is falling. When camera changes it's no longer falling.

Revealing Mistakes
When Yolandi hugs Chappie before the Moose attack, she places her hand directly over a blade stuck to Chappie's magnetic chest and it flexes like it's made of rubber.
In Neill Blomkamp's previous film, Elysium (2013), a Hippo story is mentioned through the film. In Chappie (2015) there's a character named Hippo, whose actions have certain resemblance to the metaphor of Elysium's Hippo story.

The scouts' rabbit ear antennae are inspired by the character Briareos from Masamune Shirow's manga Appleseed, of which Neill Blomkamp is a fan.

Ninja purportedly behaved very poorly on the set, allegedly leading to a complete breakdown of his relationship with director Neill Blomkamp.

Stars controversial South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord, who are both fans of Neill Blomkamp's work. Ninja has a District 9 (2009) tattoo on his inner lip.

This is not Hugh Jackman's first time in a movie dealing with robots. He also starred in "Real Steel" and in "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

Hugh Jackman gets a role speaking in his native Australian English, so while working on the film he had to get reacquainted with the dialect.
